I’m such a hoarder when it comes to lipsticks. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the products in my makeup collection, but trust me when I say that lipsticks are my VICE! I love playing around with different lip shades all year round, but there’s definitely something about the Summer sun that inspires me to mix things up and wear some of the more vibrant colours in my lipstick wardrobe. Lately I’ve been rocking a few of my favourite corals and pinks, and since you guys are always asking me what lipstick I’m wearing, I thought I’d put a post together about a few of my favourite shades for Summer.


For me, a true Summer makeup look isn’t complete without a slick of coral lipstick and the three babies below are my ultimate faves to wear when the sun is shining. First up I just have to talk about the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick in the shade ‘Orange Perfecto’. I’m all about wearing a sheer colour on my lips, so of course the oil-infused, high shine formula is right up my street. I think the thing that I love the most about the Rouge Volupté lipstick (aside from the amazing colours) is the way that the product feels on my lips. The texture is incredibly silky and pretty much melts into the lips, it’s deeply hydrating and feels comfortable all day long. If sheer lipsticks are your thang too then you need to try the gorgeous Super Lustrous Lipsticks by Revlon; they’re silky smooth, intensely moisturising and come in both matte and crème finishes. I have a couple of Super Lustrous Lipsticks but the shade ‘Siren’ is my favourite colour for Summer; it’s the perfect mix of orange and red and looks beautiful when I have a little bit of a tan. Of course I couldn’t talk about coral colours without mentioning my favourite Antipodes lipstick in the shade ‘Piha Beach Tangerine’. I’ve been wearing this colour to death ever since the sun started making an appearance here in London, I think this is probably my favourite coral shade that I own right now. You neeeeed to try Antipodes lipsticks if you haven’t already.


The Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in the shade ‘Rose Rendez-Vous’ has been a favourite of mine for awhile. I’m not usually a lover of a sparkly lipstick, but the subtle shimmer within the formula of ‘Rose Rendez-Vous’ looks super gorgeous on the lips. It’s a really vibrant pink, but as I chose to go with a sheer finish the colour isn’t quite so harsh, instead it looks super pretty and actually quite subtle. Another Lancôme lippie that I love is the Shine Lover Lipstick in the shade ‘Electrisante’. As the name suggests, these lipsticks have a beautiful glossy finish which feels super lightweight and comfortable on my lips. ‘Electrisante’ is a beautiful bubblegum pink and I feel like it works surprisingly well with my pale complexion. The ultimate pink in my lipstick wardrobe is this stunning lipstick by Linda Rodin in the shade ‘Winks’. I cannot get over how amazing this lipstick is; the colour is intensely vibrant, the formula is suuuuper duper creamy and don’t even get me started on how gorgeous the packaging is!


I’m gonna kick things off by talking about one of my favourite Charlotte Tilbury shades, ‘Sexy Sienna’. Whenever anyone asks me which lipstick is my ‘ultimate summer shade’ I pretty much always say Sexy Sienna. This shade is super gorgeous all year round, but I especially love to wear it during the Summer because it’s has a really gorgeous golden coral hue which looks stunning against sun kissed skin; it’s is a super long lasting lipstick with a beautiful creamy, hydrating formula. If you like the golden glow to Sexy Sienna you’re gonna LOVE the unique tone of the Nars ‘Orgasm’ lipstick. Orgasm is a satin finish peachy pink lipstick with a super subtle golden shimmer. Again, I’m not usually a huge lover of sparkly products, but the ‘barely there’ shimmer effect looks super duper pretty. If sparkle isn’t your thang, you need to try the Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in the shade ‘Crosswires’. If ever I can’t decide what shade to wear, Crosswires is usually the one I reach for; it’s a classic pinky rose colour which always looks gorgeous. If you’re a matte lip kinda person then make sure you give the Soap & Glory Matte Lip Crayon in ‘Pretty Muted’ a whirl. I’m more into sheer, satiny lip products, but the formula of this crayon feels so creamy that I ended up falling in love with it. Plus, how beautiful is that pink? *Swoons*

So those are the lipsticks that I’ll be reaching for a lot over the next few months. As much as I love wearing a nude lip, rocking something a vibrant coral or a bubblegum pink is much more fun! Do you guys like to match your lipsticks to the seasons? I’d love to know what your favourite Summer lipsticks are! Although I probably *shouldnt* add any more lip products to my collection, I do love to know what you guys are loving at the moment! Let me know in the comments!
